Costs significantly less than other solutions

THE CHALLENGE

The success of solar power as a source of renewable energy is driven by economics. Studies have conclusively shown that dirt, dust, and bird droppings can reduce PV electricity production by up to 40% or more. Without regular cleaning at an affordable cost, solar panels will not produce their promised quantities of electricity, nor will they be able to deliver a reasonable return on investment for their owners.

THE SOLUTION

.

The Power of Water

Solaris Hydrobotic™ Autonomous Cleaners use patented water-powered technology to propel the cleaner, rotate the nylon cleaning brush, and wash away the loose dirt. Without the need for electrical motors or metal parts, the lightweight Solaris Hydrobotic Autonomous Cleaners can be installed directly on the PV panels without expensive supports or rails. They cost much less than other autonomous solutions, enabling affordable daily cleaning that maximizes your solar energy output—even on rooftop systems.

Effective & Built to Last

Solaris cleaners are designed to clean PV panels for up to 10 years. They are produced through injection molding and engineered with plastic materials highly resistant to harsh environmental conditions, including Polyamide reinforced with glass fibers and treated for UV and hydrolytic stability. Also, smart operations such as a covered docking station, analytics for proactive maintenance, and optimized cleaning schedules maximize product longevity, cleaning effectiveness, and ROI.

 

HOW IT WORKS

1.

The water-powered motor propels the robotic cleaner across the PV panels.

2.

The motor also rotates the cleaning brush, and sprays water on the panels.

3.

The cleaning brush loosens the dirt, which is washed away by the water.

4.

The robot is parked on the side and passes in the opposite direction on the next cleaning.
